An American woman has been arrested for illegal dissection and charged with vandalising a corpse after a bizarre incident in a funeral home.

Shaynna Sims, a 26-year-old woman from Oklahoma, is accused of slashing the corpse of her boyfriend's ex while it lay in a funeral home.

The funeral home raised the alarm after the family of deceased noticed some damage to their loved one.

It is alleged that Sims used a knife or other sharp object to slash the face of the dead woman from her hairline to the tip of her nose, as well as smearing her make up. Some of the victim's hair was also found on the floor and Sims was spotted with her hands inside the coffin by the family.

A police spokesperson said: ‘I was hoping by now this young lady would have talked and given her motivation behind why she did what she did, but apparently she’s keeping that to herself’.

Sims has been put on a $20,000 bond and she is due back in court on Thursday.
